I am glad you have family to lean on during this time.  Words cannot express my sorrow for you, I won't give words of wisdom such as it will get better because right now what you need is to know all of your "sisters" are with you in spirit with love and kindness.  When you feel the time is right my thought for you from my experience with my guy passing ...

                Hi !  I just wanted to comment on the skin cancer first of all.  Mine is a Basal Cell Carcinoma, very small and kind of hidden by my glasses.  I am having a Mohs procedure so the scar will be very minimal, and a surgeon will be doing the entire procedure.  I appreciate your thoughts but I think it will be fine.  It really looks pretty good since the biopsy, they told me Vaseline should be my ...

                  My skin cancer procedure is not until December, that was the first available time they had open.  But I for certain will keep you all posted.  It is healing nicely after the biopsy, its actually pretty small and kind of hidden by my glasses.  As for his estate, things are pretty well handled, he owed no one so that part was easy.  I am just dealing with Health Ins Marketplace right now for hi...

                      Plzlive you asked about cremation. My guy did not want anything but to be cremated.  We had no obit in the paper, no service of any kind.  Those were his wishes and I followed them.  He gave me instructions as to what to do with his ashes.  I will be sprinkling a tiny bit here and there.  And some day I will be going to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field in Chicago (if you get my drift) sprinkle sp...
